HCOMP 2014: CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
                     http://www.humancomputation.com/2014/

We invite you to join us for the Second AAAI Conference on Human Computation 
and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP-2014), to be held November 2-4, 2014 in Pittsburgh PA, 
USA.

* (Revised) Submission deadline for Papers: April 10, 2014
* Workshop and tutorial proposals deadline: April 22, 2014

  **New event: Announcing the HCOMP 2014 Doctoral Consortium (see below!)**

The HCOMP conference is aimed at promoting the scientific exchange of advances 
in human computation and crowdsourcing among researchers, engineers, and 
practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines who may otherwise not have the 
opportunity to hear from one another.

The conference was created by researchers from diverse fields to serve as a 
focal point and scholarly venue for the review and presentation of the highest 
quality work on principles, studies, and applications of human computation and 
crowdsourcing. HCOMP 2014 builds on a series of four successful earlier 
workshops (2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012) and the first AAAI HCOMP conference held 
in 2013.

The HCOMP conference is cross-disciplinary, and we invite submissions across 
the broad spectrum of crowdsourcing and human computation work. Human 
computation and crowdsourcing is unique in its direct engagement and reliance 
on both human-centered studies and traditional computer science.

HCOMP invites submissions on human computation and crowdsourcing in multiple 
fields, including

Human-centered fields, such as:
   human-computer interaction
   cognitive psychology
   economics
   management science
   social computing

Technical fields, such as:
   databases
   systems
   information retrieval
   optimization
   vision
   speech
   robotics
   machine learning
   planning

HCOMP also invites submissions on principles, studies, and applications of 
systems that rely on programmatic access to human intellect to perform some 
aspect of computation, or where human perception, knowledge, reasoning, or 
physical activity and coordination contributes to the operation of larger 
computational systems, applications, and services.

The conference will include presentations of new research, works-in-progress 
and demo sessions, and invited talks. A day of workshops and tutorials will 
also precede the main conference.

All full papers will be published as AAAI archival proceedings in the AAAI 
digital library. The paper track will not accept work recently published or 
soon to be published in another conference or journal. However, to encourage 
exchange of ideas, such work can be submitted to the non-archival 
work-in-progress and demo track.

We hope you'll submit your best work to HCOMP and look forward to seeing you in 
Pittsburgh.

HCOMP 2014 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

The HCOMP 2014 Doctoral Consortium gives doctoral students a unique opportunity 
to meet each other and experienced researchers in the broad interdisciplinary 
field of human computation and crowdsourcing. Students will present their work 
and get detailed feedback. They also will get the chance to develop their 
professional networks. We anticipate being able to support most expenses 
associated with attendance (e.g., hotel, registration, subsidized airfare, and 
meals) for all accepted students. Details will be forthcoming.
